I specifically decided not to do this because I want to be able to
see stuff like:

        echo -n "Press return to avoid disaster: " > /dev/console
        read < /dev/console

Of course one could add timeouts and what's not, but then imagine
the case of two programs writing on /dev/console at the same time...
